Game Review

Although they have been dubbed Lions at home and lambs away, Fitzroy almost dispelled this theory when they scored four goals in four minutes to hold a handy lead over Carlton at Princes Park. But the long kicking Blues finally got in by four points in a game in which fortunes swung back and forth all day. Fitzroy's problem in recent years - kicking straight - was the one thing which saw them lose their sixth away game this season, while they let the Blues record their fifth home ground victory. Having 26 shots to 20 for the game proves they had more of the play and should have been victors. But winning is what League matches is all about. - Football Record.

Carlton had a close win over Fitzroy, the Lions had six more shots at goals than Carlton but did not convert as well as the Blues. - Football Record.
